Who’s Playing

Denver @ Chicago

Current Records: Denver 8-4; Chicago 6-7

What to Know

This Sunday, the Denver Nuggets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.75 points per contest. They will challenge the Chicago Bulls on the road at 8 p.m. ET Sunday at United Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

The Nuggets received a tough blow this past Friday as they fell 131-112 to the Boston Celtics. One thing holding Denver back was the mediocre play of small forward Michael Porter Jr., who did not have his best game: he finished with only seven points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Chicago was close but no cigar this past Wednesday as they fell 115-111 to the New Orleans Pelicans. A silver lining for Chicago was the play of small forward DeMar DeRozan, who had 33 points.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Denver is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

When the two teams previously met in December of last year, Denver lost to the Bulls on the road by a decisive 109-97 margin. Can the Nuggets avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
